For me, Italy is not only the cradle of human culture and civilization, but also a country of countless delicate beauties, from fashion, architecture to cuisine. I have had the opportunity to set foot in this country many times, very interested in Italian dishes. Hopefully, my love and culinary knowledge will help me better promote Italian cuisine to Vietnamese people in the near future.”

President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam Michele D'Ercole said that he had cooperated with Ms. Trang Le through series of the Consul General of Italy in Vietnam’s activities finding that she was fully engaged for this position. “We fully believe and hope Ms. Trang Le better promote the True Italian Taste 2021 project in the near future,” said Mr. Michele D’Ercole.
